YANKEES POTENTIALLY TARGETING KOREAN SHORTSTOP JUNG HO KANG

Phoenix:  The Yankees are looking at Korean Ballplayer Jung Ho Kang, as a possible shortstop.  Kang, who appears to be posted, just after the Winter League Meetings, early December, in San Diego.  According to different reports, Kang hit as many as 39 Homers, last season.  He has won three Golden Gloves in Korea.  Questions: is Kang a major league shortstop?  A valued scout believes he can and play second, third and centerfield, as well.  Does his power equate to 3o plus homers in the majors?  Korea uses the old posting system, where teams bid what they believe a player will go for.  At least the Yankees and The Genius are “THKING OUT OF THE BOX.”   The Yankees are looking at Elvis Andrus , (too big a contract after this year, declining stats and no-pop,) and Jimmy Rollins (too old.)  EDB  LIFETIME STATS BELOW…..
